Publisher's Summary

As a young dragoneer moves through the ranks of the prestigious Serpentine Academy, her challenges grow greater and her time grows short to draw out a series of deadly threats, in this thrilling coming-of-age fantasy novel. 

Sixteen-year-old Ileth is now an Apprentice Dragoneer, with all of the benefits and pitfalls that her elevation in rank entails. But her advancement becomes less certain after she's attacked by an unknown enemy, and Ileth begins to suspect that someone deadly may be hiding within the walls of the academy. 

Outside of the walls there is a different challenge. The Rari Pirates are strangling the Vale Republic. What they lack in dragon firepower, they make up for in the brutality of their ever-expanding raids, making hostages or slaves of the Republic's citizens. Surrounded by enemies, Ileth will need to learn what kind of dragoneer she wants to be. And as she makes decisions about her future, Ileth will have the chance to uncover the secrets of her past. Both will irrevocably change the course of her life.

I very rarely enjoy a fantasy sequel as much as the first, but this story took established characters and gave them so much life and color. very fun.

Dragons and strong women

This second installment of the serpentine Academy novel series was an excellent follow up to novice. Ilith, A young orphan girl from the north who has come south to become an apprentice dragoneer at the Serpentine receives a commission to return back to the North. She continues to meet new people who underestimate her because of a stutter, and she continues to follow her strong instincts to make her way through the commission. She also has a strong work ethic and a passion for dragons, and this helps her much along the way. The world building is solid, and I like that there continue to be other nations who have relationships with the republic. She eats some delicious food along the way (hoping Knight comes out with a companion Cookbook of the Republic lol). Also, some very fun imagery. I’ll be looking for some fan art on the costuming and dragon rigging and the Rari. If you like dragons, solid world-crafting and strong female leads, this series is highly recommended.
